A good sight can make a big difference in how well you shoot. This starts with being fully — and easily — micro-adjustable. It should be bomb-proof(ish), and sport the amount of pins with which you’re comfortable. If it’s a mover, it should move simply, quietly, and so smooth that there isn’t a hint of clunkiness to it.
Your sight should also be as bright as you need it so that you can easily see your pins in high light, low light, ground blinds during a foggy morning, and any other challenging conditions. Lastly, a sight should work with your shooting style. This is one of the great intangibles that can’t be understood until a summer — or season — of shooting.
Following are several new sight options for you consideration.
What do you get when you combine a premium five-pin sight with a top-notch, good to within +/- one yard rangefinder? The new IQ Define, of course. This single-unit system operates off of one-touch trigger activation so that you can range animals without having to reach into your pocket and risk getting busted. The Define is built to preserve bow balance and offer everything you’d find in a high-end sight and the best part is that it retails for only $380. This is a smoking deal when you factor in all that you get.
APEX GEAR COVERT
A new design, complete with a detachable sight bracket, is the hallmark of APEX GEAR’s latest offering, the COVERT. This four-pin mover can be set as a standard, fixed sight or utilized as a mover where the bottom .010-inch pin can cover long-range shots. It is micro-adjustable for both windage and elevation, left-hand convertible, and comes with over 100 calibrated sight tapes that allow for precision aiming no matter your bow model or arrow speed.
AXCEL Sights RheoTech
Choose from four-, five, and seven-pin options on the new RheoTech from AXCEL, which features one of the coolest new innovations out there. To account for varying light conditions, the RheoTech is built to allow you to simply twist the sight’s Rheostat Cover to adjust the FirePin’s brightness. A new diamond-shaped mounting bar promises extra strength and durability, while each RheoTech provides true third-axis adjustments in addition to offering micro-adjustable elevation and windage.
